ESA's series of Automate Transfer Vehicles (ATVs) are the heaviest and most complex spacecraft ever launched into space by an Ariane.

ATV Albert Einstien is set for launch on 5 June and will deliver the most diverse-ever cargo mix to the International Space Station around 1400 different items ranging from food, spare parts, crew supplies and clothing to scientific experiments and other vital items.

Follows Albert Einstein in this video as it the spacecraft is built from component parts in Turin, Italy through to Bremen, Germany and shipped by boat to Kourou, French Guiana for launch.
